OF ABSOLUTE HERETIC AND DR JIM AND FITRI HAY
One of Europe’s biggest players at the 2009 sales, has been Dr. Jim Hay and his wife, Fitri. They topped the Goffs Million Sale, they topped the Doncaster Sale, and they were strongly active at Tattersalls Highflyer as well.
Their impact on local sales in 2008 was nothing short of sensational, splashing out in the millions to purchase high quality bloodstock. Among their purchases was a R900k son of Galileo from theSummerhill draft of the National Yearling Sale, now bearing the name Absolute Heretic, this fellow rattled up his second consecutive victory for Jim and Fitri on Sunday, and looks to have the world at his feet. With a name like that, he’s unlikely to get to heaven, but it looks very much like he could reach Hollywood, with the advent of the Gauteng autumn and KwaZulu Natal winter seasons.
